Get to know as many people as possible because diversity is a vital part of having a well-rounded experience. You get to interact with so many different thoughts and people.


Best experience in Liberal Arts:

I just finished my first year in the political science department the best part was being welcomed into the program. I was given the information and resources I needed to succeed in my first college semester. My first political science course was American politics, where I was able to get a feel for the type of information and pace that courses at RIT provide. At first, my classes were hard for me, and it wasn't easy going through the material. But I enjoyed going to office hours and getting to know my professor. In college, you have the ability to learn and study subjects that interest you which makes learning a lot more enjoyable. When studying subjects that you enjoy you also are able to surround yourself with others who share the same love for a subject. My department also does a lot of fun social activities such as dinner, cookouts, and people coming in to give talks. I look forward to enjoying more experiences and meeting new in my department.

Campus involvement:

I'm part of the Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP)

Favorite hobby:

One of my passions is Traveling, and I love exploring new places and meeting new people. I want to spend my life exploring and always discovering something new.

Favorite TV show to binge watch:

Vanilla or Cookies and Cream

Favorite thing about Rochester:

Part of family my family lives in the Roc, and I am glad that I can be close to them now.
